How To Read a Cannabis Label

The prohibition lifted and suddenly it felt like an Oprah show – you get pot and you get pot and you get pot! There was so much pot at the dispensary, in fact, that it felt like (dare we say it?) too much pot. It’s called “choice paralysis” – we have too many options to choose from and it’s exacerbated … Continue reading How To Read a Cannabis Label

When to Use CBD and THC

ICYMI, we had a pretty big moment in December when we announced our Molly Jones CBD Gumdrops and, admittedly, we still haven’t come down from the high of it all (pun intended).

The Role of Hemp in a CBD Product

CBD is a cannabinoid in the cannabis plant, which means it can come from the marijuana plant (often alongside THC) or the hemp plant. If it comes from the marijuana plant, it has to be sold in a dispensary so all CBD sold elsewhere (i.e., your local coffee shop, day spa, or online) is derived … Continue reading The Role of Hemp in a CBD Product

A Highly Motivated Workout

Sometimes we lay in bed at night, chastising ourselves for exercising too much. Jk, we walked up one flight of stairs yesterday without wheezing and you’d think we won an Olympic gold medal. McKayla Maroney would’ve been impressed. The good news?  There’s a new kind of “Runner’s High”: people are using cannabis to exercise and it actually works. The general … Continue reading A Highly Motivated Workout

Our new trick is to occasionally mix the … Continue reading Mixing Cannabis with Alcohol

If a woman’s sex drive were a line graph, it would start high at her 20’s, take a dip during her 30’s, then fall dramatically in her 40’s.

Molly + Cora
